Have a look on Youtube at the Diablo Smart Car - you might get a bit more room in one of those...Alfa's are beautiful cars. When i worked at rust check in 2008 a early 90's Alfa with an in-line 6 came in. It was the most amazing car, the engine was like nothing i had ever seen and the interior and exterior styling was nicer than even the newest North American luxury cars. That was the first and only time I saw one as they are not sold in North America right now but there is talk that they might come back to this side of the ocean.
I like the look of the smart car and they seem reliable and cheap to run with the 0.8 diesel in them but the 30,000$ price tag seems a bit high, not to mention the limited leg room. I tried to sit in one at the autoshow one year, i think my knees were about level with my ears, :lol
It was the 164 for sure, it was bright red and in immaculate condition. The guy would not even let us drive it in and stood there the whole time watching.Have a look on Youtube at the Diablo Smart Car - you might get a bit more room in one of those...
In the 90's - I'm guessing that Alfa would be a... 164 or maybe a rare SZ? Up until recently Alfa's had pretty poor reliability but they seem to have got on top of that now. I have a '76 GT Junior and I used to drive it every day, but every journey was an "adventure" and I spent as much time under it as in it. When I bought it (in 1989, I think) it already had 13 previous owners. :um
